I'm a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Chinese Language and Literature at Peking University. My research centers on semantics, pragmatics, and their interfaces. I am currently working on the meaning and structure of biased polar questions in Chinese, and I'm also interested in polarity items and negatives cross-linguistically.
